Dublin Carol (2008)
Dublin Carol is set on Christmas Eve, centring around John Plunkett, who is an undertaker in his late fifties. The three scenes take place in his office in Dublin on Christmas Eve.
In the morning we see John and Mark, a twenty-year-old boy who is helping John while the boss is away. John and Mark return from a funeral service, and John regales Mark with stories from his past, and how he met Noel, who is, incidentally, Mark's uncle. Next, Mary arrives, who is a woman in her thirties and has a difficult request to ask of John.
The final scene is back with Mark and John, and takes place towards the end of the day and draws the play to its close.
